WESTBORO, Mass. -- Ascential Software Corporation (NASDAQ:ASCL), the enterprise data integration leader, today announced it has been named to the DM Review 100 list of business intelligence vendors for the third consecutive year. This prestigious award recognizes the top 100 business intelligence vendors as selected by the readers of DM Review magazine. In a product usage and company rating survey conducted via the Web by the Gantry Group, LLC, DM Review readers were asked to rank the vendors providing products used in their organizations. Ascential is number 21 on the list. "Ascential Software continues to occupy a prominent place on a list of elite companies evaluated by the people whose judgment matters most -- end users," said Julie Langenkamp, managing editor of DM Review. "The company's ranking is a clear reflection of its customers' assessment of the performance and value of Ascential Software products and services. The acquisition of Mercator Software, which extends the company's enterprise data integration capabilities and makes it the largest independent software vendor focused on that market, suggests even bigger success to come." Each vendor's final score is based on a statistical analysis of market share, product quality and customer satisfaction. "The recognition of Ascential Software as a pre-eminent enterprise data integration software provider by key market influencers ranks among the highlights of what has been a very positive year for the company," said Mark Register, vice president and chief marketing officer at Ascential Software. "We have posted six consecutive quarters of revenue and market share growth, and a high level of satisfaction among our more than 3,000 customers worldwide. Our placement on the list is a result of our continued commitment to supporting our customers' most strategic business initiatives and illustrates the critical importance of enterprise data integration to an organization's success."
